Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 118 lbs
Size Purchased: XS

I absolutely love this jacket for alpine mountaineering. It's extremely lightweight and surprisingly warm. I am able to fit a waterproof shell over the top of it. The hood is large enough to accommodate a helmet underneath. The pit zips are also a unique feature that I have found myself using a lot. The outer material is not very durable though (mine ended up getting some small tears from scrambling across rock) so I use it exclusively for those days when I need to go light and fast. I'm also not sure how water resistant it is. It got pretty wet when I was out hiking through willows that were wet with dew early one morning.

Although I love the look and fit of these pants, they are trashed after less than one season. I would not recommend using them for the intended purpose, alpine climbing and ski mountaineering, as they puncture very easily. They will not hold up to bushwacking through trees or scrambling across rock. I probably used them five or six times (ski mountaineering and winter 14ers here in Colorado). They would probably be fine for resort skiing or casual winter hiking.

Fit: Runs small

I have worn these pants on at least 50 summit hikes/climbs and they've held up as well as could be expected. Although I have punctured them a few times with my crampons, the nylon fabric has not ripped any further. I do think they run a little small, as I am normally a size 4 but wear size 6 in these pants (5'3, 118 lbs).

I absolutely love this pack! I have a pretty small frame (5'3 and 118 lbs) so it's typically hard for me to buy gear that fits right. This pack fits me perfectly. It is lightweight and the perfect size for skiing/winter mountaineering. This pack also has all the bells and whistles (pockets, zippers, and straps/loops in all the right places). You can tell it was designed by someone who has extensive experience in the outdoors.
